Teaching will focus on broad geographical approaches to sustainability, a diverse range of quantitative methods, and solid theoretical knowledge and competence in teaching subjects such as earthsystem science, land use change, climate change, biodiversity, and water. The candidate will have the ability to infuse LUCSUS with new methodologies, as well as to lead on connecting different researchers with enthusiasm for engagement in new and emerging areas such as place-based research and connections to big data, as well as communication and outreach.In addition to teaching the applicant should have experience of running and developing courses as well as thesis supervision. Merit is also given to having developed and received research grants.
